Hmmm, this looks tricky.  I think the Australian 2.7L G series cars came standard with the ATS wheels and the "S" should have had the 6" Forged Fuchs.  I'd put my money on a stock 911 2.7L from 1976.  Lovely to see one in a period colour but I'm trying to work out the exact shade, looks somewhere between Irish green and Speedway green.

The rear wheel arch was the giveaway for me, confirmed by digging out an old 1976 era brochure. The  Carrera 3.0 (brown)has a flared rear wheel arch, the  2.7 (red and yellow) has a "normal" rear wheel arch.

Good luck with your search.  I would contact the Porsche club in each state, starting with Victoria.  AOMC should be able to give you the VIN along with the Porsche Centre Melbourne, they still have all these old records.

Careful what you put  your money on.....

I had a 1975 Australia  Delivered Ice green 911s with original delivered cookie cutters.

This car for sale also has them;

What a nice car, any pics?  I think however that the 1976 model year here in the "S" variant had the Fuchs wheels.  Time to delve into PCA records it seems?  I'd love to know.

None the less, isn't it a shame how few decent G series 911s you see that haven't been played with?  I'm old enough to recall the modifications performed ad finatum to the steel bumper cars in the 1980s.  Luckily, many have been retrospectively corrected and I hope as time marches on the G series cars filter down to people who have an interest in original colours and trims.  I suspect that day, is a long, long time away!
